QBS group was launched under his leadership, and has grown rapidly to more than 375 partners in 15 countries. We are extremely pleased that in his new role as CSO with his experience and vision he will make an important contribution to our future plans.”
Hartmann will be responsible for the distribution of the Microsoft Dynamics portfolio. QBS group expects stable growth in the years ahead, both in terms of portfolio and footprint.“The IT Channel Company has grown over the past three years from 6 million Euros in sales to 55 million,” notes Louis Rusthoven. “We decided to adapt the company to match this growth, and to take the next step towards professionalising The IT Channel Company. This way we can continue the upward trend. The new augmentation to our management readies us for the future.”
